THE PERSON BEHIND THE PAGE

I was born in a refugee camp when my family finally made it to freedom from autogenocide and labor camps.


I am now a wife to a wonderful husband, mother to two amazing munchkins (one on the spectrum), and a doggy momma. Iโ€™m an Occupational Therapist by profession, now a SAHM and author.


I am a reader first and foremost, like most of you. The ability to lose yourself in the page. I enjoy a wide variety of books from light and fluffy reads to books that are pitch black and dripping with blood. I love monsters and things that go bump in the night.

 

Art as a form of escape.

Art as a form of communication.

Art as a form of coping.

The power of words.


And now, it's my turn to breathe words into life.
